GOSH To play with in Vegas Palette


In our little Goodiebag/box at the GOSH A/W event we were lucky enough to receive one of the 9 shades shadow collection palettes. They've released 3 of these mirrored compacts with an American theme and they are all stunning.  'To enjoy in New York' has lovely golden/nude shades, 'To have fun in LA'  has more of an aqua selection of blues and greens and the one I tried out was 'To play with in Vegas' which has very striking colours completely in tune with the bright lights of Vegas! 

You can create endless looks with these but I was pleased I got to try this one as although the other shades are far more wearable day-to-day, this is a palette I wouldn't have picked up myself. I'd be too worried it would go to waste and I'd never use it.  I'm glad I had a chance to give it a go as I had a lot of fun trying out some more colourful looks for a change!


With its 9 shades of bright, almost neon colours it can seem a bit daunting. But not only is it a lot of fun to play around with, there are a few colours in there that can easily be worn day-to-day or added to a nude shade to give subtle a pop of colour. 


wouldn't say it's quite an Urban Decay Electric Palette dupe but there are about 5 shades which are very similar indeed. The great thing about Vegas is that there are a couple more wearable shades added to the mix which makes me think this palette would get a lot more use rather than the more expensive Urban Decay version. The dark pink at the end, the orange and the turquoise shades are all very wearable and are gorgeous.


It comes in a sleek, strong packaging which is small enough to fit in your make-up bag and not completely take over. I love the nice big mirror, something I find a lot of palettes lack. One thing that might disappoint is the fact there is no brush included. For me this isn't a problem, I often find I  throw away or lose the brushes included with palettes anyway and its a great excuse for brands to bump up the price too!  I much prefer to use my own shadow brushes and it's not often I'm doing my eye make up on the go so it's not something I would be travelling around with. 


Here's what I came up with when I had a quick play around with it...




All shades have great colour payoff with subtle shimmer to them which is more apparent with some certain shades -the dusky pink and the light turquoise for example. They apply really well and blend easily. All-in-all a lot of fun and great for under a tenner. I'll definitely be taking a look at the 2 other palettes in the range.

Have you tried any of the GOSH palettes?



  1. SO bright! I love the looks you have created here :) xx

    1. thanks! I might not wear it every day but it was fun to play with!

  2. The colours are amazingly pigmented! Although I probably wouldn't use those colours, they're really beautiful and it's a gorgeous palette to have for occasions. Plus, it gives you the chance to try looks that you normally probably wouldn't.

    S xo.

  3. This is beautiful. Will definitely be taking a look in store. Like the sound of the blue/green one to xxx
